hello again i'm peter w. watching the news live from the sixty minutes of news and comment today. a bomb and gun attack kills eighty five people at a mosque in egypt's sinai peninsula. we ask those who are primaries in the past to reconsider that they cannot meet in a political sense or you can is that zimbabwe's new president reaches out to the world saying he is ready and willing to reengage after his historic inauguration. of course in pakistan orders the release of the man accused of planning the two thousand and eight mumbai attacks a move that's outraged india plus. accusations today of beatings as the police forcibly remove refugees from a former australian run prison camp in papua new guinea.

top story at least eighty five people have been killed and dozens more. have been injured after fights as target a mosque in egypt's north sinai now the attack took place during prayers at a mosque in bed local sources say the attackers planted explosives and then opened fire on the worshippers while the sermon was underway egypt's declared three days of mourning for the victims. is a non resident fellow at the institute for middle east policy he joins us on skype from cairo timothy good to talk to you again as far as you know what's being reported where you are as to this incident. the state media is currently are in that eighty five people killed at least. there is not that's all there were seven or so it's still going to be rising and it's
4:03 pm
it's pretty horrifying attack it looks like it was a. huge. still not really clear motive because i know it's my responsibility yet but it's very possibly and i say. they have turned into these in the past in sinai including you know ninety year old shit. yet still really we're getting information so clearly as well the attackers were going after this location because it was friday prayers well it's certainly true that the number of people there will be yet at its peak during friday prayers so it makes it a. bigger target for them. that it doesn't play into their compilations what's the area like. so there really is i know this is where ice there's been
4:04 pm
a lot of. fighting between i sense charity forces there for years now and so it's been a lot of violence tension in that area. and there's also been recruiting tribal forces to do. it or east. and i think as time passed and we are collaborating with the government in some way sometimes here is this story because it's. because perhaps the people who intended more from a private. people like cisco were going to go up against them. is still too early to know motivation what's. worse ok timothy thanks very much timothy called us in cairo well history has been unfolding over the past couple of hours in zimbabwe where emerson god was
4:05 pm
being sworn in as the new president thousands of cheering supporters filled the national sports stadium in harare he has replaced robert mugabe he ruled for thirty seven years and he's made a speech sort to instill a sense of hope in the people buying to create jobs reimburse farmers whose land was seen and stamp out corruption. as we. pass on to governing i can't i mean we must. resist. and this is. you have got it that i was asked. of a lot of arabs must install he also praised the work of robert mugabe as a founding father yes responsibilities of lou there's you and you from met you and a very challenging time at the best of our nation. that used to be noted and celebrated four times whatever it was of
4:06 pm
commission or mission that might have book aired during that can't go on phase in the life of our nation let us only accept and acknowledge these immense contribution towards the building a foreign nation. well in just a moment we'll get more from her who's out on the streets of harare to andrew symonds inside the national sports stadium where the swearing in ceremony took place and they're still there but you were there from the very what's the takeaway point from that speech particularly. rudy became a statesman of the six. more than sixty. of those rousing. this was
4:07 pm
a meeting of. the president. thirty seven. putting him. as the president. praising his moves and the liberation. a place in history which will judge this moment to the criticism of. the crisis. how close it came. that he went. amongst them. finishing. getting investment. with. the west and improving the
4:08 pm
still. getting jobs program. democracy. while. the list goes on and on their promises. seems. this is not. it seems to be. the new year. what happens in elections that will take place before september. elections are conducted in opposition. to. the things that you would normally in a democracy. the promises. of.
4:09 pm
rubbing shoulders with. very very. campaign of hatred against him running over the years this is a positive mood here a really awakening now of what some people didn't even really believe a couple of weeks ago where a country needed to a full coup rather than a partial one. hundred many thanks also watching that quite lengthy speech was our correspondent. also on the streets of harare for us this i mean we're talking here about a man who spawn his way through various top government jobs how does he convince people. he's fresh he's different. than what he does on the ground.
4:10 pm
and of course with a life. extremely difficult economic times. is to be more than ninety percent people who have. selling whatever they can you can see in vanity fruits and vegetables whatever they can sell to make ends meet they make very very little money but they give them by the by while they wait for the promises of jobs to be to come through other ways for foreign direct investment to be poured into the country and you see those young men in the corner that's how young people spend almost every day out in the street paying languor there's nothing else for them to do so people just milling around waiting for some kind of good news the good news now for them is of course they now have a new president which is good news the key question now is how long will he take to
4:11 pm
deliver they say they'll be patient for now but their patience will run out all eyes on him he's under a lot of pressure if you really want to convince every is involved and that he is indeed going to work to improve the lives of every single one not just people who belong to the rulings on here party you know ok he undoubtedly is a very clever cookie he has a law degree he's been through all those government departments he's less emotional robert mugabe doesn't shoot from the hip quite so much but is there do you think a chance that there's one thing that he must not forget he must not forget how roberts mugabe's career political career came to an end because yes he's the president now but he's not the president of the free and fair election. exactly that's one thing people want to remind him they say they're tired of the way things were done the way the mcgarvie is ran this country it got to its days where the president was seen as a god people hero worship him people didn't like that they say that that that that that just wasn't right and instead of focusing on the economy people were dealing
4:12 pm
with the president's family taking lots and lots of land arguing with other political figures and no one is refocusing on the economy the other thing they're also saying that they are hoping they really hoping that his change in a change of leadership he deals with when there's a lot of rot in a whole system civil service everywhere a lot of corruption. people hope he deals with that but again there are some who do know his history his background he has a checkered past human rights allegations as well he's been accused of being complicit in some abuse that happened between the one thousand nine hundred people also don't trust him but they're willing to give him a chance that he's all they have that's all they can do is wait and see if he turns around the economy quickly he will get people on the side give us more of the same more suffering then i think come next election you'll see a lot more people mistreated which could work in the favor of the opposition parties there are many things. we move on three u.n.
4:13 pm
peacekeepers and a local soldier have been killed in mali the u.n. says they came under fire in the monocular region near the mali and border with several others involved in the operation were critically injured there has been no claim of responsibility but i'm sold in groups on known to be active in that region . the south african paralympian oscar pistorius who's been jailed for murder will stay in person much longer than was originally sentenced the supreme court of appeal has more than doubled his sentence from six years to thirteen years and five months. yeah fleet was convicted in twenty for teen for the shooting of his girlfriend reeva steenkamp prosecutors argued the original sentence was quote shockingly lenient. plenty more still to come here on the news hour for you including million still at risk of starvation and disease in yemen as humanitarian workers are allowed in but still no aid. argentina's navy says an explosion was heard near the last known position of

a missing submarine as fears grow for the forty four crew who were on board. and the captain's knock a steve smith leads a fight back by australia and the first cash is task more with santa in about thirty five minutes. the u.s. says it is deeply concerned with the release of a pakistani man accused of planning the two thousand and eight by attacks he has half the saeed he was freed after a court in pakistan rejected the government's plea to extend his detention by three months so each who's the founder of a banned group that has been under house arrest in lahore since january he does have a big following in pakistan mostly because of his charitable work. the allegations have never been proven and that's why the court ordered my release despite the fact that pakistan's interior foreign and finance ministers tried their
4:15 pm
best to put me behind bars but the judges were not convinced by their fake documents pakistan india and the united states failed to provide enough evidence therefore the court ordered my release. has more now from law. after relief from the court then of crowd and of the board have come to. the hall which are known as march for the first time that a nine month ago. the congregational prayer yeah the government off my gift on had poured in a plea that putting a mound. what in the national. guard because it had diplomatic and financial implications and because of the u.s. pressure however d'accord was not going to win and renewed them for the time today he was given a hero's welcome although it indians are not happy with. the india and had been
4:16 pm
accused of involvement and an internal affair but recently the pakistani foreign secretary i mean i join you all. that baggage gone over to be we're not red come right india and showing that there were no mood in delhi for a negotiated settlement between the two countries and although india may blame our . budget on also blame the indian for supporting the degas dollar bond budget on inside of one it down and also helping the third in the budget on it also saying that it had a high level. under custody of the budget on the military and it already admitted to india. and i did it in time in tight budget on it get it to. the un says images of refugees being forcibly removed from a decommissioned prison camp among the silent shocking and inexcusable.
4:17 pm
poppy new guinea police cleared these three hundred seventy eight men from the former australian run sites and to say the police destroyed their belongings to make them leave the camp was closed three weeks ago but many refugees had refused to leave saying leave she is being attacked the un has received reports that several refugees were severely injured during the raid well one of those refugees that we've been in contact with from an asylum sent us this video describing what happened. immigration officer. minus present. some of the few years. are locked in a few days by force it is clear enough for a shot sound legal. if you don't put in the. few years. some of. those city years. some of them then we sent them could not possibly talk to me so.
4:18 pm
i'm accepting by pete you point you stand with three young women who'll take that a few years for. al-jazeera as andrew thomas is there. all of the refugees have now been picked from the former australian run refugee prison at longbridge which is about half an hour from where i'm standing out of town all those refugees now are being brought in buses to the main town of lowering gas for australia's government says there is a perfectly good accommodation that they can move into we haven't been allowed me about accommodation and aggressive security guards stop it's driving down the road towards a slight chance of filming it on friday the refugees who've been moved there have told us back from a nation is not ready to talk with no running water no power they say they also have stories of being beaten they roofing from prison again we can't independently
4:19 pm
verify but it's rather strange government is concerned this is a major moment because their big facility has now closed down and this is the beginning in their eyes of the transfer of responsibility away from australia and towards stopping and getting. relatives of forty four crew members on board a missing submarine or accusing the argentinian government of deliberately keeping them in the dark they were emotional scenes at the model plata naval base on. it was revealed that a possible explosion was detected near the last known location of the sun submarine the vessel still hasn't been found some family members say the government let the crew operate the suffering that was too old to navigate. joins us live now from that naval base in argentina daniel is the operation over. i mean really the focus is now shifting very much politically to osiris press
4:20 pm
conference there going at the moment they are talking about the search is continuing but now with the submarine at the bottom of the sea they're convinced it's at the bottom of the sea and the families who were left here as you say great anger from this naval base at the way that this has been handled have mostly gone home for more. about the whereabouts of the submarine but with little hope now that they will find their loved ones alive when the two families are still waiting here but latest information you can see behind me the media gathered to see if there's going to be any more developments the search is still going on. out in the south atlantic. vessels from the ten countries the united states russia the u.k. chile brazil are all out there with aircraft with ships with underwater rescue equipment. now is a search for the remains of the submarine which as you mentioned exploded. on the
4:21 pm
fifteenth of november so more than ten days ago now the anger here really was why that information took so long to come out why it was only revealed yesterday to the family and to the rest of the those waiting to find out what happened to the submarine the armed forces in that part of the world are not particularly held in high regard so this will do less than zero to make people feel confident about in this particular case the navy. what people are asking questions of first of all about the age of the submarine more than thirty years old asking why that was. with the idea it would be in service for another thirty years or so but the problem that all governments have had here since the one nine hundred seventy s. one nine hundred eighty s. when there was a military government running argentina something like an estimated thirty thousand people were kidnapped killed by the very same government so they are held still in very low esteem it's always questioned when governments subsequent governments have
4:22 pm
talked about funding the military about buying new equipment people really want very little to do with very disparaging of the military still so it's a difficult relationship in many ways between the people and their military and many now will be asking questions about the way that the military here is equipped . and what its role in. society there was a lot of digesting of what people saw happen but these reports of some sort of an explosion or a loud noise. realistically looking for wreckage. very much so it's just been announced at the press conference going on. now looking. at the bottom of the sea they're not quite sure this submarine when it was last heard from was at the edge of the continental shelf something like two hundred meters below the surface but that shell dropped quite dramatically around that area
4:23 pm
to something like three thousand meters. below the sea if this if the submarine is that deep it's going to be very very difficult to find the remains if you still in the continental shelf they are likely to find it with a very difficult operation now but as i say with all the latest technology supplied by many countries still very much involved in that. still many days after the heard of the submarine i think probably more questions than answers still news conference going on right now daniel any developments come back to us but in the meantime thanks very much. the saudi led coalition fighting in yemen has given the u.n. permission for some aid workers to return to the country but the u.n. says it's still being blocked from bringing in much needed food medicine and equipment to the saudi led military alliance has promised to reopen aid corridors
4:24 pm
on thursday has been facing increasing pressure from the u.s. and u.n. to lift the blockade one hundred germ jhoom reports. many expected that come thursday aid would be flowing once more through her data one of yemen's major ports saudi arabia announced on wednesday it would ease its blockade of yemen's air and sea ports and that within twenty four hours humanitarian supplies would resume arriving in her data where around eighty percent of yemen's food imports are delivered as well as via united nations flight to the capital sanaa on thursday u.n. officials still weren't totally sure when they'd be given access to restart bringing supplies to yemen we were told that the newly gave seed assists. so we could in the applications or quest for the ships that come into the boards and also for flights to come into the committee going in syria to some and also to bring it to our stuff so we would think things are normal procedures to get more of
4:25 pm
a light and we will see those places and those in the movie that we saw opening of the ports as well as notifications it of the actual operational costs not. other aid workers have told al-jazeera they welcome the saudi announcement but don't believe it goes far enough yemen the most impoverished country in the middle east is facing a number of crises. a cholera epidemic that has seen over nine hundred thousand suspected cases since april the largest outbreak ever recorded and the u.n. says seven million people are on the verge of famine and that severe acute malnutrition is in danger in the lives of almost four hundred thousand children plus the latest danger an outbreak of the potentially fatal disease diptheria is threatening children and elderly in the central city of. we want to do that not just the humanitarian side of things it was also commercial issues that meet the fuel shortage in the countries that he says you know and little we want to try meeting the fuel is also accommodated this part of this openness by the senate
4:26 pm
equalization to allude to operations that continue. now as. the u.n. grows yet more concerned and a humanitarian crisis becomes even more dire yemenis in desperate need wait for answers and aid. ok let's bring in stephen i understand steven is the world food program's representative and country director in yemen he joins us from santa steven anderson welcome to news letting aid workers is great aid workers with no aid is pointless surely well as a first step we hope that to get aid workers first flights in from tomorrow we're also hoping to get. permission for world food program ship carry twenty five thousand tons of wheat which is just hovering off the coast with . that we is sufficient to feed one point eight million yemenis for
4:27 pm
one months we're hoping again that this is just a matter of hours before we get clearance to bring this ship in so we hope that both will start to come in in tandem what's causing the delay and what kind of explanation are you being given for the delay. well we're we're actually we're just since we've heard the announcement we have been repeatedly. asking for permission for certainly first and foremost for our ship to get in and other ships that are on the way but also for our. aid workers or food program is operating the humanitarian air service servicing about sixty agencies we south. so we've been trying to get permission for both
4:28 pm
we do believe that this is actually starting to come out we got concrete. confirmation about the flights that we would get permission for the flights tomorrow we're hopeful that also the same will follow for as regards the ship and other supplies as well so i'm assuming here this is kind of like phase one of an ongoing operation when you hit phase two can you sustain that. well this is you know the first phase one is just to get in as you correctly state aid workers having workers coming in and getting the ships in and we need a continuous flow of humanitarian assistance but as i mentioned earlier in your program critical we see as as is very critical not only of the humanitarian assistance but also the commercial flow of supplies for typically fuel
4:29 pm
and food because those were food program is currently assisting about seven million people a month almost a quarter of the population on a monthly basis here in yemen and these are the people who are the most the closest to famine. but there are others particularly of almost fourteen million people in northern yemen who are depending on the markets and so increases in. food prices fuel prices that has a direct impact on them so this is our biggest concern as well that these commercial flows also be restored as quickly as possible is this in your opinion steven anderson malicious these delays they malicious or is it just administrative it's hard for us to know we're are he'll is is that we need to move quickly that
4:30 pm
we're we're racing against time we can't afford the yemeni people already are in have faced so much suffering every single day counts stevenson there in santa thanks very much there. ok let's take it to the west coast of the states here's richard yes in it really warm across air another sign that we're living in a woman world of course because thanksgiving day in los angeles turned out to be the warmest since eight hundred seventy seven we had temperatures in the city of thirty three degrees celsius found previous data out to some thirty four places so general weather conditions not quite as warm during the course of friday more of a breeze coming off the seas are temperature closer to twenty nine degrees now while we're in that general part of the world and it's worth heading across into
4:31 pm
the caribbean because here we've seen some two wrenching rain effect in jamaica rainfall totals of two hundred forty millimeters of rain the space of twenty four hours and of us the equivalent of three months worth of rain falling from well what i call a tropical disturbance that hides a multitude of sins but certain there is this cluster of rain across the region which is moving away some more so when we look at the forecast you can see we've got drier conditions across here across the rest of the caribbean as a whole is still generally fine weather conditions expected you notice the bahamas in particular moment look to be seen for. some quite heavy rain there and of cuba is looking at showers as well in places but the heaviest rain down across parts of the isthmus where we could see some localized flooding over the next couple of days . richard thanks very much still ahead here on the news for you and i cry in china over recent revelations about child abuse at the daycare centers meant to protect them plus. i'm late welling's with the samoan rugby squad preparing for
4:32 pm
a guy against england here in. the squad have been declared bankrupt but there's more to the story than not. you are making very pointed remarks where on line the u.s. response to drug use and the drug trade over the last fifty years has been criminalized or if you join us on sex you know you will first just wakes up of it in the morning and says i want to cover the world in darkness this is a dialogue could be was leading to some of the confusion online about people saying they don't actually know what's going on join the conversation at this time on al-jazeera.
4:33 pm
hello again you're with the al-jazeera news up each. day your top stories at least one hundred fifteen people now the death toll is rising they've been killed dozens more were injured after fighters targeted a mosque in egypt's north sinai it happened during prayers in butte island bed local sources say the attackers planted explosives and then opened fire on
4:34 pm
worshippers of the sermon was under way. and listen as being sworn in as him by his new president thousands of supporters packed the national sports stadium to witness this historic event he was replaced robert mugabe who ruled the country for thirty seven years. and the u.s. says it's deeply concerned at the release of a pakistani man accused of planning the two thousand and eight home by attacks he's half fees he was freed after a court in pakistan rejected the government's plea to extend his detention by three months. let's get more on that developing story for you coming to us out of the sinai area in egypt at least one hundred fifteen people have been killed by an explosive device that we think was detonated inside the mosque jury friday prayers he is our middle east analyst let's delve into this a little bit more you hear what we think happened. well what happens we just saw
4:35 pm
the initial pictures coming in from the scene of what happened unfortunately again it's another tragic event. in egypt and it's an obnoxious crime the fact that the the ones who were targeted this time just happened to belong to a sect which is this. very well known in egypt. their principal. subject in total subjugation to any ruler or even tyrant doesn't just to find such a nice crime against them so this is also one of the things that we have to mention in the background of this scene this crime i mean it targeted those fees whose main principle is a total subjugation of any ruler even a tyrant it doesn't justify the crime but it also doesn't doesn't justify the
4:36 pm
strategy adopted by the political leadership of kill them all in and let god sort them out i mean this is the strategy of the political leadership i'm not talking about the security leaders or security apparatuses in egypt i'm talking about the leadership this is the main attitude and the main strategy kill them all and let god sort them out this tragedy doesn't result in except of more. bringing more and more criminals onto the scene this has to stop they've got to be a political solution in egypt in order to minimise and to contain and to deprive any argument from those people who are born every day believing that taking office in their hands would change the political realities we've only been getting the reports about what's been going on in sinai for the last what maybe ninety minutes
4:37 pm
. there is a very strong suspicion out of cairo that is the work of do you believe that yourself well it's most likely it is a soul or people who claim to be i sold well for me i don't believe that it's it's a matter of importance now trying to pinpoint who who who is behind that he in this crime the most important thing at this point of history of egypt is to say that this this dictatorial regime have managed to create a malicious gland that keeps creeping every day every day criminals and terrorists because actually it manage over the last four years to eradicate any political horizon for the people it took away any hope again it's not justification but i mean it's it was the same thing in great britain during the war against the ira and
4:38 pm
once the ira had hope things change dramatically we're not talking about the same situation in egypt because we don't have any separatists in egypt or people who wants to separate but we have people who are living with no hope whatsoever in the future there is of course a broader eisel tapestry across the entire region we've been told now for the best part of what nine or twelve months that i still in syria is shrinking it's being defeated i saw in iraq is almost at the point of being completely obliterated is this a function of doing what people say arsenal does which is they go in a different direction or is it purely a reaction to the status quo in egypt i believe it's the second i would go for the second the second guessing in this second guessing is it's purely because of the situation in egypt and it's a natural effect the natural effect we'll rest hundreds of thousands of peace. bill
4:39 pm
and most of them most of them are innocent people when you when you do all these extra judicial killing and when when when you liquidate the people in this in people and then you know for crimes that you claim that they perpetrated them then all of a sudden you come out you come out and say oh ok we found out the the real perpetrators but what happened to those people that you look at it i mean it's a chaos it's chaos and i'm telling you without any political horizon. in the near future bs unfortunately these he was crimes will keep happening you don't take away hope from people and expect the best from them this is how i see it ok you hear many thanks so much just hearing as well from the egyptian state news agency the death toll is now being confirmed one hundred fifty five with one hundred twenty injured obviously early days in that developing story for you we'll keep you posted here on al-jazeera saudi backed syrian opposition groups have
4:40 pm
agreed to form a fifteen member delegation to attend next week's u.n. sponsored talks they've renewed their demand for the syrian president bashar al assad to resign from a conference on the conflict in riyadh but stepping down will not be a precondition for negotiations with some a binge of aid sent this report from the turkey syria border. after two long days of deliberations between various syrian groups which included the moscow and the cairo platforms the syrian negotiations committee that has been formed now has agreed to code to geneva talks on a united platform they say they've agreed that there should be a future syria without president bashar assad and his clique they also say that there should be representation of women the united nations should put serious efforts into uniting all sides and bringing all sides on to the negotiating table and the violence must come to an end in a late night news conference one of the representatives off this new committee and
4:41 pm
now has these details saying that they are now united and they can go to geneva with one voice it's a fact now. we have agreed with a group of the components right here in riyadh in addition to cairo and moscow platforms to form one united delegation to participate in the direct geneva talks in a few days. at least on the surface they have bridge the divides wish which were the divisions among them that is the question of president bashar al assad in the future of the transitional government and in a future syria according to the syrian opposition they have now agreed that bashar al assad cannot be part of the transitional stage but that was the dividing factor between them and at least the moscow platform which wants to see them going to the negotiations without any preconditions and it considers that asking for bashar al assad not being part of the transitional government is a precondition there's a lot at stake when they go to geneva syrian opposition members have been telling us that they want the united nations talks to succeed they want the united nations
4:42 pm
to be an impartial arbiter of these talks that are taking place on the twenty eighth of november in geneva because they don't want russia to be the main player that there has been talk by russia that it was to hold hold another meeting of not just russia iran and turkey but also syrian opposition groups in sochi. and opposition members fear that this might be a way of diminishing the influence of the united nations where russia would take a lead role and many people in the opposition see russia as a partner with a shot in the side and will do all it can to try and keep him in power. human rights groups are calling for international agencies to monitor the repatriation of rango refugees now and bangladesh signed that pact on thursday that will the displaced return home once their paperwork is finished around six hundred thousand running of muslims have fled an army crackdown in rakhine state over the past three months from now has more from cox is bizarre in bangladesh. there are of course
4:43 pm
a major issues with respect to the implementation of this agreement that has been made between bangladesh and me with respect to the repatriation of bringing the refugees chief of which of course is the question of exactly where many of these people go back to their villages have been destroyed burnt to the ground hundreds of thousands of them across this border and they brought literally nothing with them including any form of identification and myanmar is insisting that an identification process must start it says that this agreement is loosely based from one that was put together nine hundred ninety two when there was a similar outbreak of violence in one thousand nine hundred two the rangar refugees that came here had white cards now these white cards were proof of residency not citizenship myanmar government now saying that if the regime that you g.'s here now
4:44 pm
have proof that they once had one of those white cards then they would take to eventually be allowed to return they also say that there is going to be a system put together. papers disseminated within the refugee camps where people can register listing their former addresses their family members but of course is the issue of literally thousands of people there who are missing family members many of them are children so it's very difficult to get solid identification of these people. the police in china are investigating reports that toddlers at a child care center in beijing were sexually abused drugs and listed it is the latest in a series of child abuse cases at daycare centers stuyvesant from beijing. they're in shock and demanding an explanation these are parents of toddlers who attend the prestigious red yellow blue kindergarten in beijing children as young as three
4:45 pm
years old have said they were molested drugged and stripped naked by care workers regular blue is the largest early childhood service provider in china and is listed on the new york stock exchange for order not from me in the glass of my cello some parents have ak their children read their date aids the pews the truth is that this was the secret between then and the teachers china's child care system has come under scrutiny since cases of abuse have appeared online this case currently under investigation in shanghai appears to show a worker pushing children to the ground and forcing them to eat spicy wasabi. if you don't use case as yellow blue you slap to an outpouring of anger online with tens of millions responding. outrage over child abuse at daycare centers around the country this crisis is seen as a strong message to the government to take action to improve the safety of topless and i'm sure they're healthy development in
4:46 pm
